One of the most difficult things about being bullied is the feeling that nobody else knows what it’s like.
Twenty-two of Australia’s most talented and successful people know exactly what it’s like.
In candid and entertaining interviews, leading lights from across Australian life recount how they were bullied and shunned at school just for being different. Not only did they survive the ordeal but their experiences helped shape them into the remarkable individuals they are today.

Great biographical context in short story form for artists and those struggling to fit in to society
Excellent book. Thank you to Booktopia for recommending it to me. I suffer from mental illness partly brought about by bullying and this book was a great insight into how childhood experiences affect you. Bullying does continue into adult life and for that reason, I recommend older people affected by bullying to read it too. It gives you inspiration and hope for the future!
I am writing from the publisher, but that does not mean I don't passionately believe in this book and it's subject. Any parents or children suffering from bullying will draw so much strength and belief from this book. Please spread the word and let's continue the fight to eliminate bullying.
